My Favorite 2017 Drug Store Products

This year really seems to be flying by and with March almost half way over, I thought I would share some of my all-time favorite drug store products. Sometimes drug store products get a bad rap but I’ve found that just because it’s not super expensive, doesn’t mean that the quality isn’t there.

If you’ve been reading my blog you’d know that I love mixing drug store & designer products because I truly believe in quality and connecting with my readers of all budget types. Here are a few of my faves that I think everyone can enjoy!

Kristin Ess Hair Mask

When I found out that celebrity hairstylist Kristin Ess was coming out with her own hair line that was going to be sold at Target, I knew I had to have it! This mask is less than $15 and works wonders. It strengthens, softens and gives my hair a little extra shine. What more could you want?

Shea Moisture Black African Soap & Body Wash

This product was actually given to me from one of my girl friends and after one use I was hooked. Not only does it smell good (and is only $12), but it helps prevent Eczema & Psoriasis. During the colder months or if I spend a lot of time out in the sun, the skin on my arms and legs tends to get really dry and this little miracle in a bottle helps to clear up any unwanted dryness.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

I know I’ve mentioned this Maybelline Fit Me Concealer before but I honestly haven’t been able to find a drug store concealer that I like more than this one. This is the perfect Nars dupe and costs under $6. If you’re like me and don’t like to waste your expensive designer products on every day makeup looks, then this is the perfect product for you. You’re getting that designer look for a fraction of the price!

Wet & Wild Mega Glow Contouring Pallet

I raved about this fabulous contouring pallet in my February Favorites post but you guys – believe me when I say that I’m obsessed with this product. I feel like a lot of the drug store bronzers and contour colors have an orange tint to them and I hatttteee that. This one gives you the perfect brown color that I know you’ll love!

Lumene Valo Arctic Berry Cocktail Brightening Hydra-Oil

This amazing face oil has a blend of vitamin c, antioxidants, cranberry and cloudberry seed oils, as well as pure spring water that helps to brighten & soothe your skin. It’s only $21.99 and works wonders!

L’Oreal Paris Extraordinary Clay Mask

This clay mask for your hair is a pre-shampoo treatment perfect for those of you that tend to get oily roots. The blend of three different clays helps to absorb excess oil so you can be oil free! It’s drug store debut was January 2017 and has been a crowd-pleaser ever since.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Concealer

I absolutely love this product because just a little bit of this stick concealer after a late night out can do wonders for your under eyes. It’s hydrating center and pigmented color conceal dark circles like a pro. And even better – It’s only $12.99!

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Oil

If you’re like me and don’t like to wear a heavy lipstick every day, this Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Oil is perfect for you. It leaves you with a sheer & moisturizing lip color and is nicer than your average lip balm. It’s only $9 and comes in a few colors!

Method Body Wash

Another drug store product that I raved about in my February Favorites that deserves an encore is this Method Body Wash. This specific scent reminds me of Dolce & Gabana’s Light Blue and is free of parabens and petroleum and contains hydrating aloe and vitamin E. The best part – its under $5!

Physicians Formula Nude Wear Touch of Blur

This skin-perfecting wand has the most cushiony sponge tip and blends the product so evenly that you don’t even need a mirror to apply. I’m always on the lookout for new concealers and this one definitely makes my top 5.

L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur

Why do we like Snapchat filters? Duh. Because they blur out skin imperfections (and give us cute ears). For less than $20, this L’Oreal primer can do the same.

Maybelline Master Kajal Eyeliner

I’ve recently been trying eyeliner again and since I’m not a pro cat-eyer, I found this one to be so helpful and easy to use.

These are my favorites at the moment and of course I am always up for trying new products so if there’s one I missed or one that you absolutely love, please feel free to leave it in the comments below or tag me on Instagram! XOXO
